Once seen as a man of integrity and not beholden to a certain ideology, James Comey has had a fall from grace. Comey is now viewed as a political hack who couldn’t decide if he wanted Hillary to be president or not. Consensus says he did.
In July, Comey did not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for her email use. However he rebuked Clinton, calling her “extremely careless” for what she did. While others have gone to prison for far less than what Clinton did, Comey decided not to prosecute. The Republicans didn’t buy it, and neither did much of the public.
Who would you vote for if the elections were held today?
After this debacle, 11 days before the election, Comey reopened the case against Hillary Clinton. This move angered the Democrats who then blamed Directory Comey for Clinton’s ultimate loss to Trump.
Comey became politically homeless, and his reputation shattered.
